Craft beer, nice rooms friendly staff and gym. The attention to detail in this place is so wonderful, the hotel design is stunning and serene. A designers dream I just love the floor in the gym and coffee by the pool in the morning is the perfect way to unwind.

On the strip by Playa Grande with a few other hotels. Sugar's is usually the best priced and just as good! Geared more towards no frills, young travelers, perfect for us! The only thing lacking was a regular hour restaurant however 1 day we had a Ensalada Pollo and it was great. Great restaurants close by, a few grocery markets for dry foods, water, wine/liquor. I would love to go back if I am staying around Tamarindo area. We also fell in love with Princess (their dog) who had a personality just like ours back home!

Stayed: January 2018

I was at Sugar's Monkey for a week in June. We booked at the last minute and we couldn't have picked a better spot.
The place is awesome and so the staff. It's really close to the beach. The food is one of the best you can find in Playa Grande (especially the pizza and the pulpo salad..mmmm delicious)
We were coming back to a fresh and clean room with clean towels everyday.
Loved it!!

Room Tip: Quiet, awesome staff, good food

This is a small, informal and impressively crafted wooden surf hostel. The rooms have basic creature comfort (no TV), but the common areas are comfy and open with appealing contemporary furnishings. The A/C was cold, the pool was refreshing, the food and drinks were great. Just down the road is the path to the beach, and at low tide you can walk to Tamarindo in about 45 minutes.
